FISH ARE FRIENDS NOT FOOD (Sharks' quote from Finding Nemo)



Sign posted at the pond. Is there a double standard here? Is it wrong to be cruel to mammals and birds, but okay to eat fish? Is this like the movie Madagascar where the lion is bad because he wants to eat the zebra, but there is no problem when he eats the tuna? Not trying to make any big point about being a carnivore. I’m just saying...I find this sign amusing.

It is funny! I love it when signs highlight a contradiction, albeit inadvertently. One of the best I ever saw was one that said, "Antiques made while you wait".

DID you say 17 below! Oh my gawd! That is way too cold! And fish- well they are fish, the only ones I ever saw with personality that I would never consider eating were the koi in the Japanese garden, they were like puppies, I would never eat a puppy...

I hadn't really thought about it, but such signs make no sense. Fish are wildlife, too. And they have their rights! (although, sadly for them, their rights are widely ignored.)

indeed! that is one contradictory sign!

That's hilarious! Yes, it does seem to be silly.

I often comment when we are watching nature programmes that the commentary always takes the side of 'attractive' animals and doesn't want them eaten by 'unattractive' ones - but everything has its place in the food chain!

That is a case of some high-up wanting to save money. Then look what happens.

Great sign!
